I know I'm not the best at phone etiquette, but c'mon! [Feb. 5th, 2006|09:59 am]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

I keep forgetting to post this phone conversation I had!
I was doing calls for Online Orders one day and calling each customer to let them know their book orders were ready to be picked up. It was perfectly routine, until this call came around...(I couldn't remember the names, so I substituted them.):

Me: "Good morning ma'am, is Stuart Smith available?"
Woman on Phone: "This is Christine, his wife...and unfortunately for you, he's unavailable right now."
Me: "No problem at all. Would you be able to take a message for him?"
Woman: *pause* "Alright..."
Me: "This is Amanda from the Sierra College Bookstore, and I was just calling to inform him that his textbook order is ready for pickup at the Customer Service desk."
Woman: "...Oh. Ok. I'll give him the message!" *SLAMS PHONE DOWN REALLY HARD*.

Hahaha. That sure was a "WTF??" moment and a half. It's pretty darn sad though. What a depressing, insecure marriage that must be!
Anyway, I thought you might get a kick out of it :P

Omg. xD I'm so glad I had to make phonecalls for the NACM, where everyone was part of a business and connected to everyone else. Meaning they were, by and large, very polite. :p

One of the first times I called Mike his mother picked up the phone. His father is also called Mike, and when I asked to speak with Mike she got kind of flustered and asked, "Why?!" in sort of a terrified voice.
